Travis Fimmel talks about Warcraft movie
How do you feel all of the action and fighting from Vikings helped prepare you forWarcraft?
It certainly helps. It’s very different. Warcraft is very motion capture-oriented and special effects-orientated and we wear costumes that I couldn’t get through a door with all the armor. You can’t lift your arms above your head with that on, but Vikings is a bit more natural with the fighting.
Were you aware of the whole Warcraft phenomenon before you stepped into the role of Anduin Lothar?
No, I wasn’t at all. It’s amazing how many people play the game. I saw all the visuals. The movie is so close to Warcraft. They really kept it true to the game and you get a pretty good sense of the game just from what we’re doing on set.
Did you ever go back to try to play the game after being in the movie?
No, to be honest, I haven’t. I’ve never been much of a gamer.
